When: Tue., April 16 2013
Price: $26.50-28.50
ANDREW MCMAHON Despite his relatively young age of 30, singer/pianist Andrew McMahon has been through more in the music business than many people twice his age. From indie and major labels with his bands Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin to his well-documented bout with cancer and countless tours, McMahon has seen it all. Now, he’s shed the moniker Jack’s Mannequin in favor of his own name, with the promise of a new EP and tour. From what I’ve heard, his eponymous music sounds about the same as the piano-based pop-rock he’s been making with his previous bands for the past decade and a half. But is that a bad thing? Not if you like melody, hooks and the sort of feel-good, summer music they play on the radio, but without the feelings of shame and guilt which comes from working the FM dial. It’s a shame McMahon has never achieved the success and ubiquity of someone like Adam Levine, because honestly, he’s better.
